When The Phoenix Weather Cools - And The Ways You Can Insulate Your Windows Against It

November 18, 2015

During these winter months, the weather sees a drop in temperatures in Phoenix. And when you see how that affects your energy bill, it’s time to find ways to scale it down. Insulating your windows goes a long way toward saving energy throughout the this season’s colder climate.

Discover these three ways you can insulate your windows for the upcoming drop in temperature in Phoenix, AZ.

Traditional Sealing Kits

Weatherproofing kits are a familiar sight in home improvement stores in the Phoenix area. These sealing kits come with instructions on where to stick the tape, the amount of film to cut, and the best way to shrink the film. This reduces drafts and heat loss.

But more and more homeowners shy away from this method when they have a number of windows to cover. And when you apply shrink film to a window, this means you can’t open it until spring. If these things concern you, insulating window treatments, like Polywood® shutters and Solar Gard® window film, are a better choice.

Polywood Shutters

Polywood Shutters Completely Closed To Insulate The Windows For The Phoenix Winter

Made from a wood polymer, Polywood shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment you’ll find in the Phoenix area. They block the effects of the weather 70% better than a similar wood shutter, and 1600% better than an aluminum blind. Polywood decreases airflow by up to 45% and blocks temperature by 30°.

The weather stripping, the shutter frame, and the louver material combine to make Polywood shutters the best solution for insulating your windows.

Solar Gard Window Film

Solar Gard is a premium window film you can apply to your windows year round. It does not affect your window’s look, which is not the case with insulating kits. And the best part of Solar Gard is the option to open the window at any time because the film is limited to the glass area, and not the frame.

Solar Gard is especially beneficial during Phoenix winters because it decreases heat transfer through the window. This means the chill air doesn’t enter and the heat of the room doesn’t leave.
